Kanye West And Future Rap About Their “Trophy Wives” Kim Kardashian And Ciara

  • In a new song called “I Won,” Kanye West and Future rap about showing off their respective fiancées Kim Kardashian and Ciara, who they repeatedly refer to as “trophies.” The whole thing is equal parts sweet and icky; I mean, “trophy wife” is not exactly a compliment, gentlemen. How about we respect our partners for who they actually are rather than how well they reflect on you? [Flavorwire]

  • Also, Kim and Kanye supposedly didn’t realize that one of them needed to live in France for at least 40 days prior to getting married there. Ooops. [In Touch Weekly]

Brian Williams And Lester Holt Do Flawless “Cover” Of “Rapper’s Delight” On “The Tonight Show”

Brian Williams And Lester Holt Do Flawless "Cover" Of "Rapper's Delight" On "The Tonight Show"
Wait Until Lester Comes In...

Okay, so it’s not a “cover” per se, as the entire song is spliced together from news clips of both anchors, but it doesn’t matter — it’s tight. Especially the part where Lester Holt comes in and the two are dueting. “Hotel, motel, Holiday Innnn…” SO GOOD. Jimmy Fallon is seriously bringing it his first week on the job at “The Tonight Show,” huh?

Billy Ray Cyrus’ “Hip Hop” Version Of “Achy Breaky Heart” Is Literally The Most Terrible Noise To Be Recorded In History

billy ray cyrus
WARNING: Ears May Bleed

Everything about “Achy Breaky 2″ — the “hip hop” version of “Achy Breaky Heart” by the rapper Buck 22 and Billy Ray Cyrus — is an embarrassment to vibrations we call “sound.” I don’t think anyone would call this monstrosity “hip hop.” Or country music. Or a song, really. From the sexy alien ladies twerking, to the appearance by Larry King, to the reference to his daughter Miley’s song “Wrecking Ball,” it’s more like a cesspool of poor decision-making. Watch — and listen! — at your own risk. The Cyrus family might be a greater threat to the quality of American pop culture than originally thought. [YouTube]

Better Just Stick To Country Music — OK, Dolly?
  • Dolly Parton is a goddess who can do no wrong. But, um, this clip of her rapping on “The Queen Latifah Show” wearing a blonde Afro wig is cringe-inducingly awkward. Just stick to country — OK, Dolly? I hope voicing this opinion won’t halt invitations to special Dolly/Latifah girly brunches. [Entertainment Weekly]

Thirteen-year-old John Borgen had dated Rebecca and then dated one of the girls accused of viciously cyberbullying her and telling her to die. John said he had no idea Rebecca was being cyberbullied by the girls, ages 14 and 12. Those girls’ identities are being withheld by police because of their ages. [ABC News]

Watch Sandra Bullock Nail “Rapper’s Delight”

Watch Sandra Bullock Nail "Rapper's Delight"
Go Sandy, Go Sandy!

Normally I feel a little queasy in my tummy when famous non-rappers try to rap famous rap songs (e.g. Gwyneth Paltrow). But Sandra Bullock was so endearing and funny and decent in her attempt to rap Sugerhill Gang’s “Rapper’s Delight” on the UK’s “Jonathan Ross Show” that I didn’t even feel a tinge of my usual secondhand embarrassment. Take notes, Gwynnie. [Huffington Post]

Nicole Richie Enters The Rap Game, World Sighs

"My plantar fasciitis, that's a baby thang."

Nicole Richie loves rap, but she wants rappers to rap about things she cares about. For her new occasional AOL video series “Candidly Nicole,” Richie visited rapper/producer Ebone Hoodrich, who is tasked with helping her create a rap so she can “get her street cred back” (which is a thing she never had, and is therefore impossible to lose). What does Nicole Richie — street name Nikki Rich — rap about? What are the central tenets of her life? Well, bangs, gluten-free spaghetti, and complaining about her plantar fasciitis. So yeah, basically she’s just like you and me. [E! Online]

Why Chi Phi video
Cold hard-crushing cool!

Back in 1988, the members of the University of Southern California chapter of Chi Phi Fraternity put together a promotional rap video to attract new members to their fraternity’s ranks. The vid, set to a funky original track, includes a multi-part rap about colors (!) and a lot of pretty awesome dancing. We’re particularly fervent fans of Ricky Z., the suspender-ed, long-haired main rapper who explains that “people say that I’m slow/why/’cause I’m high, but they don’t know.” Plus, we’re really digging the cameo from a really, really archaic old computer terminal. Basically, I’ve watched this video about 10 times now, and I’m hoping to memorize the rap so they’ll let me rush their frat. I think I have a good chance of getting in; my sweatshirt game is pretty tight. [Weird Dude Energy]

Waka Flocka Flame and Diane

You know, sometimes in life you’re going to be faced with difficult choices. Where to go to college, whether to quit your job, what to eat for dinner, whether it’s worth divorcing your husband to go to a Waka Flocka Flame show. If you are anything like Diane D. of Florida (pictured with WFF), this isn’t a very labored decision at all. Obviously, you leave your husband for Waka.

A few months ago, Diane wanted to go see Waka Flocka, but her hubby wasn’t having it. He disapproved of rap music and attempted to dissuade her from going by telling her she would be out of place amongst a largely African-American audience.  That was when the 53-year-old woman, who actually writes a blog about hip hop, realized that her husband just didn’t get her.

As she wrote in her blog: Keep reading »
